Infant Sore Throat
Print this pagePrint this page    Email this pageEmail this page
Though your child's dry, scratchy throat may clear up on its own, you need to keep an eye on it. Call your pediatrician if your child's condition lasts longer than a week or is accompanied by fever, earache or difficulty breathing or swallowing. This could be a sign of infection, and further treatment may be necessary.
Tips
Liquid Assets
Comfort your child's sore throat by making sure they drink plenty of fluids. For older children, warm beverages can be especially soothing. Also, set up a vaporizer in their bedroom to moisten the air.
Sharing Isn't Always Nice
Because the germs that cause sore throats can easily pass from person to person, tell everyone in your household to wash their hands as frequently as possible, and to avoid sharing glasses, eating utensils or towels.
Recommended Product
Infants' MOTRIN
Infants' MOTRIN® contains ibuprofen, a medicine that can reduce fevers and relieve minor aches and pains. It can be difficult to get a sick child to eat or drink and that makes it harder for them to get better. So give that fever the cold shoulder with Infants' MOTRIN®, which lasts up to 8 hours.
